LTS Camera and NVR Tested

Author: John Scanlan, Published on Jul 25, 2016

LTS is one of the fastest rising manufacturers / OEMs in North America. 

We recently bought and tested the LTN8704-P4LTS, a 4 channel NVR, along with the LTS CMIP3024W-28, a 4MP turret camera.

We tested them against similar specified products from Hikvision, who is reported to be their OEM but with different 'firmware', to see what was different and how LTS stacked up.
